This report describes an individual with gender identity disorder and Asperger's Syndrome. Although a growing body of information exists related to these conditions, a recent literature search only described a few cases of children where both disorders were present. A MEDLINE search failed to produce any cases of adult males with both Asperger's syndrome and gender identity disorder. The interaction of both conditions and possible relationship with obsessive traits or obsessive compulsive disorder may provide a better understanding of a possible linkage between the two disorders and support more rationale treatment approaches.
